#GivingJOY

Giving back and spreading joy is in our DNA, so we wanted to create a donation-based series that allows us to support causes that are near and dear to our hearts, as well as our members’ hearts. As such, the #GivingJOY series was born.

Each month we’ll host a #GivingJOY charity ride where 100% of the proceeds will go towards the chosen cause. All bikes are free to reserve, but we kindly ask that you donate to the cause if you can.

march’s Cause

House of Hope

House of Hope provides homeless mothers with individualized support and transitional housing to achieve secure families and permanent homes. Their vision is to end the cycle of homelessness for mothers and children in the Cedar Valley.
